Hanover, N.H. -- Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton visited Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire on Monday. This is part of the college's America's Economic Future discussion series.


Clinton took the Spaulding Auditorium's stage after an introduction by Former New Hampshire Governor John Lynch and his daughter.

 "I don't want any ceiling holding anyone down," Clinton said. That is what my economic agenda is all about."

She spoke about her views on such subjects as pay equality, health care and equal opportunity. Questions were opened to the public involving the recent Transpacific Partnership and other trade deals and United States foreign policy.

In anticipation of Veterans Day, and after having visited veterans earlier Monday, Clinton also spoke on the current state of care afforded to veterans.

"We've got to do a better job providing benefits that our veterans deserve, because I take this issue very seriously and I want to be a really good effective president for our vets," she said.

And in terms of other hot button issues, Clinton's potential competition on the GOP side of the presidential race was also a popular topic.

"What do you think of Donald Trump," one person in attendance asked.

"I will run against anyone they nominate, and if it's him, put on your seat belts," Clinton responded. "That's all I can tell you."

Some students in attendance, like Sarah Atac, say they were thrilled with Clinton's appearance.

"It was incredible," Atac said. "I just got to meet her. I was a little star struck."
